The Red Rocker is back on the road and headed to SXSW in Austin, Texas on the next episode of “Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar” presented by Mercury Insurance. Sammy Hagar is honored as a keynote speaker at the South by Southwest music festival, which is the biggest in the world. Then he’s going to hook up with hip hop pioneer and Run DMC front man Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. The all-new episode airs on Sunday, Aug. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on AXS TV.
McDaniels will sit and chat with Hagar for a while and then the best of two genre worlds will collide as the two iconic artists hit the stage for a rock-rap jam session like you’ve never seen. McDaniels is highly-credited for pioneering hip-hop culture. Run DMC hit the ground running with their self-titled chart-topping debut album in 1984. They were notably the first hip hop group to score a gold record and a Grammy nomination.
McDaniels and Hagar are both Rock and Roll Hall of Famers who have seen the music industry and its myriad of genres evolve over the past several decades. Getting these guys together on stage is a melding of the minds you won’t want to miss. You can catch deleted scenes from the upcoming Aug. 6 “Rock & Roll Road Trip” installment in the attached video. Be sure to tune into AXS TV this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT to catch this epic slice of genre-crossing music history.
